    Sata is completely different than IDE.

    Get the length that you need for the HDD.

    Are you still using a IDE HDD?

    just read your motherboard manual and find where the sata port is. or when you get your new sata cable, just look around the mobo and plug it into the one it fits into; it can only go into one of the many places on the mobo.
